Key Largo – Free screening @ Salt Lake City Library
Aug 13 @ 7:00 pm

In this film noir classic, an approaching hurricane traps embittered World War II veteran Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart) in a hotel on the Florida Keys with ruthless gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson). As the storm rages outside, tensions simmer between Rocco and McCloud while sparks fly between McCloud and his war buddy’s widow (Lauren Bacall). We’ll focus on the hurricane that creates the movie’s suspenseful setting in a post-film discussion with severe storm expert Dr. Edward Zipser, a professor in the University of Utah’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences. Discover what scientists have learned about the factors that make some hurricanes so deadly and destructive (think Katrina 2005 and Sandy 2012), get a glimpse at a few of the newest research tools, and learn how real storms differ from the Hollywood versions.
